Even though it's not quite Halloween, Emma has decided to give you all a "Beary Special Treat"! This doesn't cause weight gain, but it will cause CUTENESS OVERLOAD! Included in this hop, you will see a "Beary Special" stamp set that was designed by Emma for this special hop! Also joining us for this hop are 5 VERY TALENTED "Guest Designers"! So, you should have arrived here from Jeanne's blog, but if you happened upon here by chance, you'll want to head over to Emma's blog to take this from the beginning!
I used the new Cricut Teddy Bear Parade cartridge for my card today. It's perfect paired with Emma's new Beary Special Thoughts stamp set! My card base is cut at 5" from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge. I cut the coordinating square layer, along with another square 1/4" larger and sewed them together.
The cute bear is cut at 3 3/4". I cut the face mask twice, so that I could put a patterned paper on top of the solid colored straps. I also used a Peachy Keen stamp for the eyes instead of the ones that come with the cartridge. The top right corner of my card looked a little bare, so I cut some more of the heart layers, at 6".
I made this card to give to a good friend of mine a couple of days ago, before she was heading in to have a liver biopsy. The sentiment from Beary Special Thoughts was exactly what I wanted to say to her. Here is a look at the entire adorable stamp set:
